The other day I picked Sam up from AWANA cubbies and the teacher informed that he didn't get his verse checked off because when she prompted him with "Give", Sam replied "Give what?". It was supposed to be "give thanks to the Lord...". That was my bad because in the midst of school, work, soccer, boy scouts, AWANA, housework, family time, and church work, our weekly verse had been overlooked. It is just a little bit more embarrassing, I must say, when you are the pastor's wife. We made up for it this week and learned 2 verses, but the laundry got neglected in the process.
Does anyone ever feel totally caught up? I know I don't and I don't see relief in the near future since I just registered for 2 classes next spring and I am going to start a parenting study at the church in January. I think I have lost my mind. Expect more tapped out blog entries in my future and don't beat yourself up if your kid doesn't know his AWANA verse this week. You can skip the laundry next week and catch up.
TODAY'S SIDE NOTE: We had family pictures taken 2 weeks ago (the week we failed at AWANA) and I got the proofs back this week. Here are a few. I am thinking about changing my whole blog background so I can use these in my header.
